Basic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are a baking basic. I'm pretty sure they were one of the first things I learnt how to make. These ones are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle which is the way I love them.

This recipe is great because a child could do all of it by themselves (except maybe take the cookies out of the oven). All you need is one bowl and one wooden spoon. It should be part of your baking repertoire.

I even attempted to make a youtube video, so you can see me make these cookies below :)


75g butter, melted
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup of chocolate chips or chopped chocolate

Preheat oven to 180°C

Combine butter and sugars.
Beat in one egg.
Add the flour and baking powder. Stir until it is half combined.
Pour over the chocolate chips. Mix until it is all combined.
Roll into balls and press down with a fork.
Bake for 7 minutes at 180°C
